Description

The Icarus is the latest creation from Loaded Boards and we couldn't be more stoked on it!

Packed into a smaller package than both the Dervish Sama and the Tan Tien, the Icarus comes in at 38.4" long, and has a wheelbase the sits between the Sama and Tan Tien at 28.25".

A larger standing platform and integrated 3D wheel flares give you reference points that lock you in, while at the same time allowing clearance for wheels up to 80mm.

Whether you're looking to surf the streets, push to class, or tear up the hills, the Icarus is a certified ripper!!

We recommend setting it up with 180mm Paris V2 Trucks and some 80mm Orangatang Kegel Wheels.

Introducing the Loaded Icarus
"Because sometimes you need to fly too high"

Building on our experience with high-performance skateboards and snowboards, the Icarus elevates the frontiers of our design and manufacturing to deliver unprecedented control and feel for riders seeking the highest-performance carving experience available.

SPECS
Length: 38.4” (97.5 cm) Width: 8.6” (22 cm) Wheelbase: 28.25” (71.76 cm)

PERFORMANCE
Powerful Flex—Vertically laminated bamboo and fiberglass construction pair with a cambered profile and a variable concave for a lively and engaging ride. The cork bottom helps dampen out vibrations without compromising the liveliness.
User Friendly—Drop-through truck mounting positions the deck lower to the ground for easier, more efficient pushing and enhanced stability. Light weight and compact size make the Icarus intuitive and commuter friendly.
Shapely Curves—The right curves in the right places enhance rider ergonomics while contributing to a responsive and high-performance ride. Wheel well flares accommodate big wheels and improve turning leverage and control. Variable concave yields a consistent flex pattern while providing a variety of riding experiences based on foot placement.
Practical Kicks—Minimal nose and tail kicks help navigate city streets and open the door for freestyle trickery.

FLEX
The Icarus comes in two flexes to provide a variety of experiences based on rider weight and style. Try ‘em out and see what suits you.
Flex 1: 170-250+lbs / 75-115+kg
Flex 2: 100-200+lbs / 45-90+kg

SETUP
We recommend 180mm or 10” reverse-kingpin trucks with wheels up to 80mm for carving and commuting (with the right trucks and bushings). Smaller wheels work well for freestyle and freeride. As always, experiment!

An absolute dream!
on 2019-12-02
This was my dream board for the longest time and I'm so glad I bought it. I've had it for about 2 years and it's still holding up perfectly. It's the perfect board if you're looking to just cruise around or carve it up. It does have kicktails but they are very small so this isn't the best freestyle board but it is still capable. Mine has Paris 50 degree V2's and 77a Caguamas and it slaps. Would absolutely recommend.
So glad I bought it. (150 lbs, flex 2)

1st setup: 50 degree caliber trucks (drop-through), Orangatang In Heat wheels, Zealous Ceramic bearings. The flex is unbelievable. This board carves super hard for the length, just don't be afraid to really dig in to the turn. Comfortable to ride for long distance, because the board absorbs so much shock. 2nd setup: Carver cx4 trucks w/nipple bushings (top-mount), Orangatang In Heat wheels, Zealous Ceramic bearings. Even more room for flex before hitting the ground. Carves so much harder that it can be scary and the back wheels sometimes skid sideways. Pumping/carving propels the board forward, so no kicking needed. The flex allows for more energy to be put into pumping/carving. Its just incredible.

This board is so beautiful and well crafted. It provides the exact flex I was searching for. It hugs my feet, like it was custom made for me. I'm super little and light but the way this board responds to me makes me feel like a beast. I love this ride!
Icarus completes my quiver.

My first drop-thru. Very smooth ride aided by the 80mm wheels(83a), cork, Khiro soft riser, and the natural spring to the board. I ordered the day it became available and arrived at home in proper time. The shipment was incredibly well packaged. The Icky completes my quiver when paired with my Tesseract, what else could I possibly want? They both travel with me wherever I go. I'm prepared for any terrain.
